Wikileaks Founder Speaks Out on DNC Email Hack: Blaming Russia is “a Diversion being pushed by the Hillary Clinton Campaign”
As hacked Democratic National Committee emails have been leaked by Wikileaks, people have attempted to go after the organization and its founder Julian Assange, as well as try to make the story about Russia hacking the emails. However, on Monday, Assange responded by saying that blaming Russia for the hack is simply “a diversion being pushed by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
While the media’s propaganda machine rolls on, ignoring the information contained in the emails and instead attempting to go after Assange and his organization for simply posting the material, they have simply become useful idiots for the Clinton campaign.
Assange was asked by Richard Engel, “Three cyber security experts told us that the DNC emails were hacked by Russian Intelligence. What do you say?”
“There is no proof of that whatsoever,” said Assange. “We have not disclosed our source, and of course, this is a diversion being pushed by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
“We have published 20,000 authentic documents from in the heart of the DNC, which is now turning the convention upside down,” Assange added.
“The real story is what these emails contain, and they show collusion at the very top of the Democratic Party to derail Sanders’ campaign,” he continued. “Would Hillary Clinton have won anyway? Maybe, maybe not. I think that it’s completely up in the air now, and so the result of the nomination process has no political legitimacy.”
NBC claims that the experts they cited from Secureworks, Fidelis Cybersecurity and CrowdStrike said, “Russia’s goal in leaking the emails through Wikileaks was to sow chaos in American politics to help Donald Trump win the presidency.”
OK, so these “experts” believe these emails will sow chaos in American politics? Who needs these emails for that? American politics is about a chaotic as politics can be!
“They are trying to give Trump an indirect edge or an indirect weight by which they can help him accomplish his goals,” said one expert.
The NBC report referred to Vladimir Putin as having a motive to help Donald Trump and then played a clip of the Donald saying, “Well, actually, Putin did call me a genius.”
While several points were made about Donald Trump’s lack of enthusiasm about NATO and the mutual “fondness” expressed between Trump and Putin, those are hardly evidence that Russia was behind the hacks.
In fact, Donald Trump spoke out against Hillary Clinton saying, “She worked very, very hard to rig the system. Little did she know that China, Russia, one of our many, many ‘friends’ came in and hacked the hell out of us.”
Still the cybersecurity experts claim that the DNC was hacked by cyber units from both Russian military intelligence and the new KGB. However, we are left to wonder exactly how they came to this conclusion.
According to the report, the nicknames that were given to these hackers were “fancy bear” and “cozy bear.”
NBC reported, “They use signature IP addresses and malware associated with Russian state actors.”
Another cyber security expert told NBC that the hack was an “outrageous attack on the US political system.”
Russia has denied any involvement in the hacks.
One does have to ask why NBC failed to mention the fact that Clinton’s husband allowed the sale of technology to the Chinese, which put them years ahead in nuclear missile technology following the sale. They also failed to recognize the corrupt nature of the Clintons’ relationship with Putin, including the sale of Uranium to Russia, and that the current land grabs are all about those resources. It’s interesting how those facts don’t make it into the report, isn’t it?
While security should be a top priority, the fact remains that the documents expose the DNC for what it is, lawless. Attempts to overshadow where the hacks came from seem to be an attempt to whitewash what the DNC has been engaged in.
